This is why stuff like "face book" scares me.

From all I've heard about this case, this kid is about to get a real lesson of the justice system. I just hope he learns his lesson.

I have to agree with you there - I stay off Facebook just so nothing can come back and bite me in the butt. Better to keep things on the quiet I say.

I would suspect that jail would be like a smorgasbord to this boy.

Facebook shouldn't scare you. This boy tricked the others boys, like a lot of people do on the Internet. On many sites you have to "know" a person and accept an invitation from them in order to converse with them. I definitely blame the 18 year old for what he did but also blame the parents of the other kids, depending on their age, for what the other kids did. Parents have to be checking their kids computers for content of what their kids are looking at and sending out. Parents have to start taking responsibility for what goes on in their own home in reality and in virtual reality!
